Royal Photography Exhibition Brings in Visitors from Far and Wide

Back to news listings

A prestigious international exhibition has been going down a storm at The Hive in Worcester with visitors coming from across the region to view 100 unique photographs.

The Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibition is the longest standing exhibition of its kind in the world, having been held almost every year since 1854. It went on display at The Hive in February and runs until March 23 and is free to view. 

Anne Hannaford, Director of Arts and Culture at the University of Worcester, said: “We are delighted with the response the exhibition has been receiving from visitors with people coming from all over the region to see it. The Hive is one of only a handful of locations nationwide chosen to host this exhibition, which is a huge honour for us.” 

This unique selection of 100 images, curated by a panel of renowned photographers and photographic professionals, offers something that will challenge ideas and capture the imagination. Embracing all genres and styles of photography, the International Print Exhibition combines photographic skill with ideas rich in meaning, message and technique. 

The 158th Exhibition opened in October 2015 at the East London Photomonth International Photography Festival and comes to The Hive from Aberystwyth Arts Centre. After The Hive, it will travel to Warrington Museum and Art Gallery.

Simon Roberts HonFRPS, one of the 2015 Selectors, said: “I believe we have selected an exemplary range of work, reflecting different age groups, nationalities and the varying interests, methodology and vibrant aesthetics of the photographic medium today.”
